After a very VERY busy few days shooting at the crack of dawn, rain, cold and wind, it was so nice to end our trip with a stay at the beautiful Hotel Des Grands Boulevard. This small boutique station is less than a 3 minute walk from the station Grands Boulevards should you wish to get the metro with minimal lugging of luggage. Once you walk into the foyer to check-in you enter a pretty sexy receipton area with a view of both bars. We were so excited to also hear our room has been upgraded to a suite which is just the dream really isn’t it.
Hotel Des Grands Boulevard is a gorgeous 50 bedroom 4* Hotel part of the Experimental Group in Grands Boulevard, Paris. With two bars and a restaurant on the ground floor as well as a terrace on the 4th floor, it’s a stunning option for accommodation when staying in Paris for a week or a weekend.
The Bed & Living Space
I would describe the room as romantic with the princess curtains draped over the head of the bed and. After a long morning shooting, jumping on that bed honestly felt like falling into a cloud and I loved the combination of modern design with more rustic wooden stools and bed side tables.
The most exciting part for me was of course, THE BATH. As someone who would always pick a bath over a shower, stepping into a room with an inviting bath gets me all kinds of excited and it really was a dreamy bathroom with his and hers (on this occasion, her and hers) sinks, a spacious shower and super spacious bath.
The Bars & Restaurant
The Grands Boulevard Restaurant
Half bar/cool communal work area, half restaurant For me this was the most beautiful spot in the hotel with loads of natural light and a gorgeous botanical bar centred in the middle. The atmosphere is energetic but not too lively making it the perfect spot to start a working day or unwind after with a gin & tonic – I know which I’d pick.
Next to the restaurant is the Shell cocktail bar. Much sexier vibes, very in theme with the Experimental Group image with powdered pink and dark blue velvet and dim lighting. With a huge shell positioned just outside, escape for an intimate drink after a long day.
What boutique hotel isn’t complete without a rooftop bar. We had a chance to sneak a little peak on our way out as we didn’t have time to have a drink here but the bar channels a kind of minimalist apres-ski vibe when visiting in January.
I hope this has inspired you to make this gorgeous boutique hotel your base during your stay in Paris. To book your room:
